News from Momentum 2: The Breakthrough Campaign for the University of Miami

September 27, 2013 — Continuing its stellar track record in innovative health care education and research, the University of Miami School of Nursing and Health Studies is now planning to open one of the nation’s first education-based Simulation Hospitals. The five-story, 39,000-square-foot facility—a key priority of the Momentum2 campaign—will replicate the real-time flow of activities in a clinical practice and hospital.

The Simulation Hospital will be a global resource for educators and health care professionals to assess and address patient safety breakdowns in the hospital setting. Research has shown that training in a simulation environment saves lives.

To fund this pioneering effort in patient safety, the School of Nursing and Health Studies recently announced the R. Kirk Landon Challenge. Established to engage a community of people who care about the future of health care, Landon will match all leadership gifts of $50,000 or more, up to a total of $1 million. Landon and Pamela Garrison, R.N., co-chair of the school’s Momentum2 campaign, are joining forces in this ambitious undertaking on behalf of the school’s vision of making the Simulation Hospital a reality.
